When I was growing up, my father used to say...
"I don't like the fancy Italian restaurants, I want the Italian restaurants that use red and white tablecloths".
We love them too!
So, in honor of my father and all who love them... we are offering a 60"x60" square restaurant-quality tablecloth sporting the red & white checkered look.
100% Polyester. Machine wash. No ironing needed. We use this at home and it's really a good quality tablecloth.

Southern Italian Desserts - Rediscovering the Sweet Traditions of Calabria, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, and Sicily
An authentic guide to the festive, mouthwatering sweets of Southern Italy, including regional specialties that are virtually unknown in this country as well as variations on more popular desserts such as cannoli, biscotti, and gelato.
In Southern Italian Desserts, author of the acclaimed My Calabria, Rosetta Costantino, collects seventy-five favorite recipes from the regions of Calabria, Campania, Basilicata, Puglia, and Sicily. These picturesque areas have a rich history of beautiful desserts, many of them tied to holidays and festivals. For example, Zeppole di San Giuseppe are doughnut-like pastries topped with cream and cherries, traditionally made in Campania for the celebration of Father’s Day. And the Sicilian chilled watermelon pudding Gelo di Mellone is a refreshing dish served in summer for the festival of Palermo’s patron saint, Rosalia. Other desserts such as persimmon gelato, chocolate-dipped figs stuffed with almonds and candied orange peel, and chocolate-hazelnut cake rolls celebrate Southern Italy’s local bounty and traditional foods. With recipes for more familiar Italian desserts such as cannoli and gelato, as well as deliciously obscure sweets such as rich cassatas, almond-flecked cookies, and flaky cream-filled sfogliatelle pastries, Southern Italian Desserts features a treat for every occasion.
In addition to explaining the regional history, symbolism, and lore behind the desserts, Costantino teaches you how to stock your dessert pantry and provides all of the foundational recipes you need to embark on a sweet tour of the Italian south from your kitchen. This delightful confection of a cookbook will expand your dessert repertoire and leave you dreaming of Italy. Buon appetito!

The bottom stamp is approximately 2.5 inches high. The top portion is approximately 3.25 inches high. (sizes may vary slightly since these are handmade). The diameter of both the top and bottom stamp are the same, measuring about 1 7/8 inches.

The Tuscan Sun Cookbook: Recipes from Our Italian Kitchen
“Tuscan food tastes like itself. Ingredients are left to shine. . . . So, if on your visit, I hand you an apron, your work will be easy. We’ll start with primo ingredients, a little flurry of activity, perhaps a glass of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and soon we’ll be carrying platters out the door. We’ll have as much fun setting the table as we have in the kitchen. Four double doors along the front of the house open to the outside—so handy for serving at a long table under the stars (or for cooling a scorched pan on the stone wall). Italian Philosophy 101: la casa aperta, the open house.”
—from the Introduction
In all of Frances Mayes’s bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life. Both cooking and eating in Tuscany are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband, Ed, share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: dishes prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients.
A toast to the experiences they’ve had over two decades at Bramasole, their home in Cortona, Italy, this cookbook evokes days spent roaming the countryside for chestnuts, green almonds, blackberries, and porcini; dinner parties stretching into the wee hours, and garden baskets tumbling over with bright red tomatoes.
Lose yourself in the transporting photography of the food, the people, and the place, as Frances’s lyrical introductions and headnotes put you by her side in the kitchen and raising a glass at the table. From Antipasti (starters) to Dolci (desserts), this cookbook is organized like a traditional Italian dinner.
The more than 150 tempting recipes include:
Frances and Ed also share their tips on stocking your pantry, pairing wines with dishes, and choosing the best olive oil. Learn their time-tested methods for hand rolling pasta and techniques for coaxing the best out of seasonal ingredients with little effort.
Throw on another handful of pasta, pull up a chair, and languish in the rustic Italian way of life.
Remember? Nana would (and maybe she still does...) dry her dishes with towels she made and embroidered from flour sacks? Well, we have removed the flour and are offering the the natural towels for you to add to your kitchen.
The set includes 3 oversized dish towels: 20-inch by 30-inch. Made of 100% cotton and hand-woven in India.
Perfect as a general all purpose working towel for the kitchen and throughout the home. Lint-free and absorbent, these floursack towels are excellent for glassware/barware/dinnerware. Floursack towels may also be used to line proofing baskets for rising bread. They are really versatile.
We are offering a natural color. Towels are machine washable.
Here's how it works: Your Wood-fired Oven is hot and you've just made a pizza or two for your guests - to take away the hunger. Now for the main coarse, you roast some veggies, make a salad, and rake some coals forward from the back/side of your oven toward the oven opening. Place your Tuscan Grill on top, and grill your steaks, veggies, bread... anything!
It can be used over a campfire or in your fireplace. The Tuscan Grill has plenty of room for grilling vegetables, meats, fish etc. with 196 square inches of cooking surface.
The grill has a height of 4" with the legs, which can be used directly over hot coals. Without the legs you can lay it on a conventional chrome-plated or enamel pan to produce tack-sharp, well defined grill marks.
Cast iron construction
14" x 14" grill surface, 4" high legs
